San Dimas, CA (November 24, 2004)–Christ’s Church Of The Valley (CCV) recently upgraded its sanctuary sound with help from Design2020, a Charlotte, NC-based consulting firm offering audio, acoustics, video, and lighting design services. The firm, in turn, turned to QSC WideLine line array loudspeakers.
“The church sound team knew what they wanted when they first came to me,” recalled Design2020’s Armando Fullwood. “They also had done a tremendous amount of research, and knew the technologies available that could meet their needs. It was left up to me to turn their vision into high-performing reality.”
Given the alt-rock inclinations of CCV’s music ministry, the church essentially requires the same kind of sonic horsepower as found in touring rigs. With seating for 800 in its sanctuary, even coverage across the full depth and width of the room was also desired. Taking all of this into consideration while developing his design, Fullwood specified loudspeaker elements from QSC including offerings from both the ISIS WideLine product group and AcousticDesign Series.
A total of four WideLine enclosures were hung per side above CCV’s sanctuary stage. Running in a bi-amp configuration, Fullwood chose to power the cabinets with PL 230 and PL 236 amplifiers from QSC’s PowerLight2 Series. Used as frontfills, eight of QSC’s AcousticDesign model AD-S82 loudspeakers provide a little extra warmth in the front pews.
Fullwood remarked, “The coverage was indeed smooth and even, there was nice stereo imaging, and the energy was incredible. A succession of drummers took to the risers to try the system out, and we couldn’t get them to leave, not even with an offer to buy lunch. They just played on, clearly relishing the sound. We finally went to eat, and they were still at it when we got back.”
